In a surprise thriller, the Utah Jazz outlasted the Detroit Pistons in overtime 154-148. It was one of the highest-scoring games in Jazz history and was an absolute thriller that took everything the Jazz had to pull away.

In the fourth quarter, the Jazz got another heroic performance from Jordan Clarkson who willed the Jazz to victory with 36 points and the majority coming in the fourth. He was 11/20 from the field and 4/5 from three and the Jazz needed every bucket.

The Jazz also got big time play from Walker Kessler who had was a dominant presence inside on defense and had 8 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 blocks. Kessler changed the game with his play and was a team-leading +15 for the game.

With the game on the line the Jazz had a bonkers sequence that included this set of plays where Lauri Markkanen hits what looked like a game-winning three only to be followed by Alec Burks knocking down a buzzer-beating three to send it to overtime.

Once in OT the Jazz were able to pull this one out but what a game for the Jazz that probably no one was expecting!
